Driven and raised by Christian principles, Mr. Pope found his inspiration in richness of Rap and Hip Hop, whilst being comforted by gospel tunes. In 2001, Mr. Pope entered the music scene as a 16-year-old Christian rapper, Prophet Child. His first LP was a self-released project that professed his love for Jesus Christ. In 2008, Prophet Child and B Anointed released an LP titled “Street Gospel”. In 2013, after being asked to write an anti-bully song to perform at schools throughout the Chicagoland area, Mr. Pope replaced the emcee name Prophet Child. Shortly after, he enrolled in a teaching program and received his master’s degree in teaching. In 2015, the budding artist was hired at McNair School of Excellence (located on the west side of Chicago). McNair became the inspiration for his songwriting process and artistic spirit. This message of love and tolerance including staying steadfast in the face of turmoil and troubles of life is one that is burning and relevant throughout his discography.
